Default Forgot Password...

I have a computer upstairs that i have not used in a couple of years. I decided the other day to use it, so i turned it on, and it asked for my user password. I unfortunately had forgotten it. I tried to get around it, but I couldn't. The computer has windows xp professional. If you have any ideas, they would be greatly appreciated.

Thank-you

Did you try booting into safe mode, and logging on as the administrator, then changing the passwords?
